Paul Funke Photography | About
Thank you for visiting the Paul Funke Photography collection; I hope you enjoy the photographs. From my point of view, photography is as much an adventure as it is art, irrespective of whether I hiked two miles in an attempt to find that sublime composition of a bygone railroading relic or, in the comfort and controlled environment of the studio, lighting the pristine still life.

A lot of folks ask what kind of camera I use or how I process my images, but it’s important to know that the camera or the process is only a means to an end, a tool, or tools, used to accomplish a particular goal, that of photographing what I see as closely as possible. Most of my images are recorded on medium format black and white film, the rest supplemented by digital images, color slide film and almost always shot from a tripod.
